Dear St. George Families,
Complaint from neighbors on 13th. We had a call about parents cleaning out cars and dumping trash on the parking strip or curbs while waiting for their children. PLEASE respect our earth and our neighbors by picking up after yourselves and your children. We take pride in ourselves and our campus and it is important that we all be good neighbors!
